Wall of Compassion

We stood in silent solidarity, on a snowy sidewalk in 20 degree weather.

Today, I took part in a “human wall of compassion.” Several hundred people gathered outside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center and surrounded the building in a show of support. We stood in silence out of respect for the mid-day prayers. And while we faced outward, away from the building, our thoughts were inward, in empathy for those praying inside New England’s largest mosque. It warmed our hearts to hear many give thanks as they left the building. Our message to them was clear:

We have your back.
